A man was robbed by the woman he was trying to solicit for prostitution at the Catalina Motel in Lexington on Saturday night, police said.
The man, who was not identified by police, had gone to the Catalina to solicit the woman, who was staying at the motel with her boyfriend, Lexington police Lt. Dean Marcum said.
Instead of getting what he came for, the man was robbed of his cell phone and money. He then called police to report the crime.
When police arrived at 6:51 p.m., the woman, Charity Sands, 21, ran, but she was later caught behind the motel.

She was charged with first-degree robbery.
Her boyfriend, Andrew Penn, 21, was charged with possession of narcotics and arrested on an outstanding warrant for failure to appear, Marcum said.
Both were taken to the Fayette County Detention Center.
The robbery victim was cited for soliciting prostitution but was not taken into custody.
